I just finished out week 2 of the Couch to 5k running program. On Tuesday, I looked ahead to week 3 and was very intimated to see three minutes of non-stop running. Fast forward to today and I feel ready. Tonight's run was easy. I made my best time yet. I made my best distance. I finished the second half stronger than I ever have, to the point I had to walk past my house because there was too much time left on the clock. I pushed myself and it felt good. I was never tempted to stop.
Running a continuous 10, 20 or 30 minutes still sounds incredibly daunting–but it no longer looks impossible.
